Live Storm Chasing on Google Maps

Discovery Channel Storm Chasers
Watch live streaming video of storm chasers on this Discovery Channel Google Map. The Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers and additional teams, hand-picked by Reed Timmer, are being tracked and are broadcasting live on this iMap Weather map.

As well as tracking the storm chasers the map shows the latest weather so that users can see the interaction between severe weather conditions and the storm chaser's activity. The vehicle map markers only appear on the map when the teams are on the move and have activated their GPS, video and other data.

If you can't see the cars on the map then you can get a good idea about the awesomeness of this map from the screencast below:
